Agnomia


      Agnomia
In this miniature masterpiece, R bert G l whom Joshua Cohen has called a phenomenon conducts a noble experiment in uncategorizable prose One long, unbroken paragraph, blending memoir, fiction, and philosophy, Agnomia takes the reader on a transcontinental journey from Lower Manhattan to the Little Quarter of Prague, but most of all it takes the reader on a tour of the writer s mind Meditations on tautology, sexuality, and art culminate in an attentive evocation of a concert given by the composer and saxophonist John Zorn For readers of Thomas Bernhard, Georges Bataille, and E M Cioran, Agnomia is a book to relish.

    Not so much a book for fans of Bernhard, Cioran, and Bataillea book for fans of talking about Bernhard, Cioran, and Bataille, while stoned, and not having read Bernhard, Cioran, or Bataille I m sure Gal has read them I m not sure the appropriate lessons were learned.
